Toft Wildflowers

Last year I recorded all the wildflowers in my garden and will attempt this year to fill in an extra species missed previously or new arrivals. These are done on a lightbox with top lighting. 

Pinhole Photography

A pinhole camera is a camera without a lens but with a tiny aperture. Light from a scene passes through the aperture and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box, which is known as the camera obscura effect. 

1. Take an unwanted body cap for your camera and cut a rough hole in the centre

2. Tape a piece of aluminum foil over the hole.

3. Find the exact centre of your foil by drawing various diameter rules across the cap.

4. Make a very small hole in the foil. A fine sewing needle is the best tool I have found.

Alpine Flower Page

I am just starting the task of uploading around 300 alpine flower images to my website - this may take a bit of time!!
